Cork Stone on Stanton Moor and stone pillar box at Horsley
|Cork Stone on Stanton Moor|
On Stanton Moor there are a number of these blocks of granite. They are the harder rock that has remained as the plateau was worn down through the ages. Cork Stone is 15 feet high and has iron foot rests driven into it. It is also covered with graffiti, accumulated over many years.
|Stone Pillar Box in Horsley|
One of the pride and joys of the pretty village of Horsley, this stone built pillar box is one of the few remaining in this country.
